POST
John: Listen again to Luiza's post.
Ana Clara: Fazendo compras para matar a saudade da minha irmã querida!
John: "Going shopping with my dear sister! I was missing her."
Ana Clara: (SLOW) Fazendo compras para matar a saudade da minha irmã querida! (Regular) Fazendo compras para matar a saudade da minha irmã querida!
John: Let's break this down. First is an expression meaning "Going shopping."
Ana Clara: Fazendo compras
John: This phrase means “to go shopping”. It shouldn't be confused with the gerund...
Ana Clara: comprando
John: which means the act of buying. Listen again- "Going shopping" is...
Ana Clara: (SLOW) Fazendo compras (REGULAR) Fazendo compras
John: Then comes the phrase - "with my dear sister! I was missing her."
Ana Clara: para matar a saudade da minha irmã querida
John: The phrase
Ana Clara: Matar a saudade
John: ...literally means "to kill the feeling of missing someone, the longing." The word...
Ana Clara: saudade
John: ...is a noun that encompasses this whole feeling. In Portuguese, to end it, you normally "kill it." In this case, it's "to kill the longing for my dear sister." Listen again- "to kill the longing for my dear sister" is...
Ana Clara: (SLOW) para matar a saudade da minha irmã querida (REGULAR) para matar a saudade da minha irmã querida
John: All together, "Going shopping with my dear sister! I was missing her."
Ana Clara: Fazendo compras para matar a saudade da minha irmã querida!
